Summer is Really Here

shirt- h&m, skirt and flats- forever 21
sweater- hand knit by me!

It took long enough to get here, but now that I’m at home relaxing I feel that summer is finally here!  It is so nice not to have to think about school or work or anything for a while. =)

You might recognize this outfit- this is what I was wearing when I took the pictures for this week’s On Nnenna’s Needles.  I love this as a warm-weather look- a chambray shirt tied at the waist worn with a cute floral miniskirt!  In this outfit I just want to jump and play and run around like a little kid!  Ohhh, how I love summer! :D

This season has been quite the busy one so far, with my graduation first and my sister’s graduation from high school just yesterday!  For the past few days, I’ve been shopping for presents and writing thank you cards for all the lovely people in my life who helped me get to this point- I’m so grateful for all of them!

Tell me: Have you guys been attending graduations, weddings, or other summer events?
P.S.  I’m so excited for what’s to come!  I’ve got some changes planned for this month, as well as my news to share with you- I can’t wait! =)

    I spy with my little eye…. a motion shot!  I like the skirt – I got my very first floral skirt yesterday.  And I've said this before, but you are SO talented with your knitting.  If I had the skill to knit, I would never buy sweaters again.  I'm in complete awe and envy, Nnenna.
